Diane 35 worried
hi doc,
im on diane-35 for my skin and for a birth control. ive been on it for six months now. when i started taking it, i had nausea as a side effect, and i was told it normally goes away in first few months. i still experience nausea, esp at night, its a hungry kinda nausea. Is it normal for this to happen. And please how safe is the pill? i take it very carefully, and same time every day and i never miss, yet when i experience nausea i start stressing that im pregnant. Can nausea be due to something else. i know i cant be pregnant as im very carefull and i still have regular periods.

Some women do experience nausea as a side effect for all the time that they are on the Pill. You are more than 99% safe.
